Wheel sizing help

What is the widest wheel and tire that will fit on a r170? Car currently has the AMG wheels and from what I've gathered are 17x7.5 +37 up front and 17x8.5 +30 for the rear. Also what offsets is everyone going with for an aggressive wheel/tire setup?

Id like to go 9.5-10 in the rear and 8.5-9 up front.

Thanks

I know how to calculate offset. I just don't know what will fit and I won't have the car back for a couple weeks.

I put my original specs in and then played about with the tyre size, wheel width and off set and it worked for me. I ended up with 19" F 8.5 R 9.5 tyres 235/35 and 265/30.
